Example if you are selling hotel rooms, we can track how many room bookings you get from your monthly spend withGoogle AdWordsby usingGoogle tracking code. IE: If you spend $10.00 a day or $300.00 a month and you received 10 room bookings, each for two nights at $100.00 each you get $2,000.00 sales. So 10 rooms x 2 nights = 20 room nights / $300.00 = $15.00 cost per room night sold. This is good as long as your profit per room night is more than $15.00.

What is ROI - return on investment, the above tells us that we generated 20 room nights at $100.00 each = $2,000.00 and we spent $300.00 - our ROI is $1,700.00 for our $300.00 investment. Not only is the above a good return on your investment but it also filled rooms that would have sat empty for ever.

Best In Four Years

2014 was a banner year for tourism in Vancouver.

2015 was even better.

2016 pushed the bar even higher with 10 million visitors.

And now it looks like 2017 will be Vancouver’s fourth consequetive record-breaker when it comes to how many people visited the city.

Although the final numbers won’t be tallied until March, Tourism Vancouver expects to be able to boast of 10.3 million visitors last year.

There was strong growth from Australia, China, Germany, Mexico and the United Kingdom, says Amber Sessions, the tourism agency’s communications manager.

The fundamentals for a strong 2018 are also there, she says.

• air capacity from Asia/Pacific is expected to grow with increased seat capacity from Australia, China, Mexico. There are modest increases from Canada, Europe and the United States;

• cruise demand and the number of ships visiting our city is also expected to increase. Vancouver gets approximately 230 cruise ship calls annually. Each ship stimulates more than $2 million in economic activity;

Ads for nearby dealers are also now available in mobile search in the US.

Google is launching its specialized mobile search ads for automotive manufacturers and dealers. First announced in beta la st May , Model Automotive ads and Dealer Automotive ads are now available  to eligible advertisers in the US.

Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) automotive advertisers can run Model Automotive ads on searches for auto makes and models. The ads feature large-format images, performance details and links to the manufacturer’s website, nearby dealers and other information.

Toyota and Ford are currently running the new ad formats for some models. Google says engagement rates on Model Automotive ads have shown to be 30 percent higher on average compared to standard text ads. “Across our core line of car models, we’ve seen a 45-percent increase in conversion events and a 30-percent decrease in CPA compared to standard text ads,” Dionne Colvin-Lovely, director of traditional and new media for Toyota Motor Sales, USA, said in a statement.

The Dealer Automotive ads are available to franchise and authorized auto dealerships in the US. The ads include location, directions and a click-to-call button for nearby dealerships and display at the top of mobile search results. The dealer ads also integrate with the Model Automotive ads, accessed from the “Dealers” tab in those ads.

My answer is always the same when asked how much should I spend on Google AdWords vs Bing/Yahoo and other media. I ask the most important question back - what is your budget?

We usually get 50% of responses from small business that have a standard business plan, a budget as well as a Certified General Accountant CGA . These are the best new clients as they already know that they must spend money to make money.

What a lot of business plans fail to breakout is the Marketing Plan and advertising plan. In December 2007 the great recession in the USA, Canada and the World put the brakes on any unnecessary spending and the size of major newspapers became all but a portion of their original might. Even the Yellow Pages started it's decline into extinction, you can see them is Museums throughout the Courtney. 19 Months later June 2009 and things started to turn around and people started new businesses and reinvested in their old ones. 

On January 9th, 2007 Steve Jobs announced the iPhone would be available on June 29th, 2007. Looking back it was the perfect storm and the marketing and advertising industry as we know it would never be the same. The business community was very conscious moving forward and became smarter and better at their jobs, they started to demand a Return of Invest RIO on advertising and marketing initiatives. The old saying was "half of my advertising works" I just wish I knew which half.

Fast forward to 2017 and Google's   revenue was over 75 Billion dollars as they dominate the search engine marketing real estate and enjoys 75% of the market share. It is interesting to note that the Google AdWords platform is very similar to that of newspapers classified ads. The same number of word in the headline, same number of lines in an ad and a call to action. The best thing with Google is you can say 100% that an ad clicked on by a searcher visited your website. The second thing Google did was created conversion tracking and now we can tell which ads  lead to  a filled out the reservation form on your website.  And what keyword did the searcher type into search engine to prompt the ads to show on the search engine results page . So now we can say with 100% certainty that Google AdWords is working for the advertiser. If you are currently using Google AdWords and want to know if you are using conversion tracking contact us here.

So how much money do you spend on marketing? You can get free accounting budget software from the internet and it will have industry specific guidelines or better yet get a CGA Certified General Account . I worked in the hotel industry for many years and they would spend anywhere from as low as 5% to as high as 15% depending on the property, restaurants between 3% and 15% of sales. Many business owners will try and save as much of this money by doing local charity work, social media and having a family or friend build their own websites.  And just not advertising, taking a wait ba see what will happen approach - don't do this you will go broke. All your competitors will be spending their 10%-15% and more is some cases to capture their market share of the business. 

So budget 5% to 15% of your sales for marketing , the only question left is how much on print, radio, TV, newspaper and the Internet. 

With Google AdWords, Bing and Yahoo we know you can track how much an ad cost and how much a sale of your product cost to make or produce is and what your breakeven is. As long as your Return On Investment ROI is positive you can be confident your company will remain profitable for years to come. Only spend money on advertising that you can track.

Give us a call and let us give you a free review of your existing Google AdWords Account or if you are new to Google AdWords, Bing or Yahoo we can get you set up for success and on page one on day one.

When you have an itch seeking out information or finding a product or service you do internet search on Google, Bing or Yahoo . You are immediately taken to a search engine results page ( SERP ), the best answers in the world wide web.


A selection of about 17 relevant websites listed and results - most people never go to page two.Of the  are the sum your search query . Of 17 website listing 10 are traditional organic website listings or free listings. If you are very lucky or have the best webmaster in the world you can get to position 4 - never #1. The chance is slim to none that your website will ever be on page one for most search queries needed to be relevant in the marketplace. Your website and business are competing with thousands of other very smart business owners and webmasters , not to mention the Big Box Multi National Chain Stores that dominate most search results real estate.



Now the good news,

Not all is lost, you see the top four website listing are paid listing are now available to market your website/business at a very affordable price. These ads and tractable so you can tell which ads turn into sales, unlike traditions advertising media like yellow pages . That’s right the first four positions are paid listing and your website can be listed in position # 1, 2, 3 or 4 on page one of Google, Yahoo & Bing.


Google is very fast a getting new AdWords account up and running and why not this is where they make their money. In most cases we can have a new account actively showing results within 24 hours and in many cases within hours.


You have total control over how much money you spend, ads can start or stop showing any time 24/7, 365 days a year. There are no lengthy contract and the dashboard is easy to learn and monitor. New Google AdWords accounts can be very effective with as little as $5.00 a day budget - a fraction of the cost of advertising in the yellow pages, newspaper, radio or TV.  


The bottom three website listing are also paid listings, so 10 out of 17 are available for organic website results , meaning the best real estate is not available.

Sure you could hire a tradition search engine optimization ( SEO ) website agency to perform their very expensive work and then you could wait 3-6 months to see if it works. There are some very good SEO agency available, be diligent and careful who you work with.


We recommend blending s earch engine optimization ( SE0 ), search engine marketing ( SEM ), social media marketing ( SMM ) including Facebook , Google+ and content management to cover all bases. Ask your webmaster to recommend these specialist they use.

I have finally decided to take the plunge and add a blog to my site. I always wanted an easy way to share information with visitors and I’m super excited to start this journey. Keep coming back to my site and check for updates right here on the blog.

The big question is why do I need a Facebook, Google+ or a Blog page at all.

The quick answer is your website is old and boring and really does not even come close to telling the real story of your fantastic exciting, cutting edge business.

So here is my experience with most websites I visit.

You spend several thousand dollars and months of being nagged for information, content, proof reading and finally you have a new website and you can't wait to get back to running your business,  you don't update it for weeks, months and yes even years. Your have not not even added that you received a service award 6 months ago because you just are affraid of all the moving parts and the hidden cost that keep popping up.

A Blog is a page of a website that you control and you can post information on and you can have control to delete, edit, add a videos, photos of your new puppy or a new sales associate you have hired or add a new post anytime you want to 24/7 365 days a year.  The real good news is your webmaster can't charge you a monthly fee for SEO or Linking.  Your Blog will tell the little Google robots that your website has new content and Google loves new content, after all it rarely see any, it also improves your SERP or your position on Google Search Results on page one or as your webmaster would call it great SEO.

Think of your Blog as a customer that calls you and ask you what's new and exciting at your business this week or if you are one of the few people that still advertise in the newspaper, blog about the content of your ad.

The good news is we can also oversee your Facebook, Google+ or your Blog for you.

Anyone can make one:
For better or worse, anyone can write a blog post about anything they want. Everyone has a voice and the best voices will rise to the top.

The writer can show their personality:
In blog posts, the writer has more leeway to add in their voice and personality than other types of writing.

Blogs are a great form of mass communication:
You can help people, learn new things, entertain your audience—the possibilities are endless and amazing. Blogging opens up all of these to a very wide audience.

You can make money:

Get the right blog going and you can make a lot of money through advertising and sponsored posts.

It allows people to craft better thoughts:
Instead of reading haphazard, uneducated Facebook statuses, it’s much better to see people’s thought process in a well-written blog post.

You can establish a community:
Blogging allows you to connect with other individuals who share the same interests. Sharing ideas and opinions within your community helps establish yourself as a thought leader.

Good for SEO:
Keeping content on your site fresh and relevant, you can use your blog to boost the search engine ranking (SEO) of your site and your business.

It brings people back to your site:

If your blog is strong enough and updated regularly, people will come back looking for more and bring traffic back to your site as well.

It’s free:
It costs you a grand total of zero dollars to post to the blog, so if you have something to say, there’s nothing to stop you.

You can establish yourself as a thought leader:

A blog is a great place for your original thoughts, and it can be a wonderful way to show off your individuality. If people like your ideas, you can become a thought leader in your industry!
